I knew exactly what the clue wanted, but just couldn't pull Swanson tonight.
Same. Considered and discarded Butterball, ended up going with Stouffer's even though I was 95% sure it was wrong.

Re: Friday, December 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought there were two rather sloppy mistakes on today’s show. First, they had the misspelling ‘INDIESPENSABLE’ in one of the clues. Then in the -TED category, Alex said the correct answer would not have the letters T, E, D. The first answer turned up was ‘ten’, from ‘tented’. Alex’s explanation ...

Tally up another FJ! response of Haiti. Tally up another expectation for a reversal on bar. Did anyone else notice an odd timing issue when contestant Alex was responding to a clue? He rang in, the camera framed him and there was a lengthy pause as his timing lights started extinguishing before host...

Re: Wednesday, December 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ugh, definitely should have gotten FJ. I've heard of the organization and its myriad illuminaries but wasn't aware of its founding so that cluttered things for me. I ended up going with American Bar Association just to have something although the Nobel Laureate tally did not jibe (oh, and off by a c...

Instaget but I'm curious how many among us would have gotten it if "of Saint Paul" was omitted from the clue.

From The NY Times: Merriam-Webster named “they” as its word of the year on Tuesday, amid the growing use of the plural pronoun to refer to a single person whose gender identity is nonbinary. The publisher said searches for the definition of “they” on its website and apps increased by more than 300 ...

Topps baseball cards as a bottom row clue? Seemed to easy, but I didn't clam, and was rewarded. I was worried that the other two might be another sport, since I vaguely knew Topps made cards for other sports. Turns out the other two groups did/do, as well. NHO Bowman or Panini America, but apparent...

Another one for Kroc, even with my discomfort of it not fitting the category. Spent too much time considering Wendy's, Arby's, Jack in the Box, etc. Somewhere I think I have two or three brain cells that know there were actual McDonald brothers but they were drowned out by my internal noise.

Right composer, wrong opera (The Marriage of Figaro). I never made the Don Giovanni <-> Don Juan connection before but will not make this mistake again.

I could've done without Alex throwing shade at the entire home viewing audience during his opening remarks. For some reason that rubbed me the wrong way. "CLASSIC BRITISH NOVELS' anchored me to novels taking place in Britain so that particular quote did not lead me to any useful associations given t...

Re: Thursday, November 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Should have gotten FJ as I am very familiar with the term, but instead I could not get "manifestation" out of my head. And really, except for the whole derived-from-Sanskrit thing, it is not too bad.

Incidentally, the quote "Stella! Hey Stella!" is on the list, so it was a good guess...except for the 1951 part. If it hadn't been a decade off, and they hadn't given the years, it would be cheap, because most people just go "Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" when remembering the quote. (Or, at least, that's ho...

I went with The Blue Parrot as thought for an FJ that Rick's was too obvious. Once you get to the correct movie it's really a coin flip.

I don't understand the calls for a 15-player tournament. We just had one in the spring and it would essentially end up being the same thing except replacing someone with James.

Elise played with a lot of intensity and I'm curious to see if she can sustain it over the course of a full taping day.
